I felt that it was the right time to start a new blog. Sure, I could have updated my old blog quynhmai.wordpress.com but I felt that it was only appropriate to start a new one because the old one was for my Mass Communications 100W class.
I’m using this blog as an outlet for my thoughts and interests in advertising, graphic design, photography, and anything that I find creative.
For those who don’t know me, My name is Quynh. I’m a senior at San Jose State University and I’m majoring in Advertising (creative track) and minoring in Graphic Design. I aspire to become a creative art director and only hope that my work stands out and makes enough of an impression to get me where I want to be.
I’m not really great at giving introductions about myself so I’m going to post this transcript of a podcast I made a while back for my New Media class. Hopefully it will give you a gist of what I’m all about.
“You’re different from everybody. And it’s okay to be different. Kids might have called you names like weirdo or outsider and they had no problem in letting you know it. Really, it’s okay. Don’t let their elementary vocabulary and reading skills get to you. If they could even process it, let alone say it, they’d be using words like ingenious and innovative! But there is one thing that they did get right, You. Are. Different.
Let me elaborate.
You idolize spokescharacters. You buy magazines for the sole purpose of ripping out print ads. It’s not vandalism, it’s guerrilla marketing. Your artistic canvases are as big as billboards, buildings, even bigger! It’s anything you can get your hands on. You’re generating ideas out of the wahzoo!
Dare I say more?
You’re a freaking crusader of creativity.
